Will Smith Issues Apology To Chris Rock After Slapping Him At The Oscars: “I Was Out Of Line”

You know, sometimes we might do certain things without thinking about their consequences which can be considered out-of-line by others. I mean, we are human beings and we make mistakes and also learn from them. And Will Smith also realised his mistake and apologised for it. The Academy-award winning actor issued a public apology to Chris Rock after the slapping incident at the Oscars ceremony. Okay, this is better!


FYI, Chris Rock was on the stage to present an award during the ceremony, he joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head which made Will Smith furious, he went up to the stage and slapped the comedian leaving everyone stunned. After that, the King Richard actor apologised to the Academy and all the nominees. On Tuesday, he issued an apology to the comedian on his social media account. In the post, he mentioned that his behaviour at the Oscars was unacceptable and inexcusable and he reacted emotionally because Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia. He apologised to Chris Rock, the Academy, all the attendees, and the viewers. “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally,” he wrote in the post.

There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness. I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us. I am a work in progress. Sincerely, Will.”
